After Jennifer Lawrence proved she could style her of-the-moment pixie cut in 10 different ways during the Hunger Games: Catching Fire tour, she's done it again, taking on a new look: the mussed-up middle part. This past weekend, she attended a photocall for her next flick American Hustle, showing off a piecey look that split her bangs right down the center, while leaving the locks from her crown back in an effortlessly cool zigzag part. Middle parts on short hair can easily go wrong (remember Alfalfa from The Little Rascals), but Jennifer did it the right way by framing her kohl-rimmed eyes with a longer fringe.

Re-creating the style at home starts with a solid blowout. Use the concentrator attachment on your blow dryer along with a slim round brush to style hair forward in a downward motion. You don't want to create too much volume. You can use a half-inch flat iron to refine the pieces around the face. Resist the urge to curl under, and keep the ends stick straight or even flipped out a touch. Even though it appears to be a basic middle part, a zigzag line is the key to getting Jennifer's chunky, layered look. Start by using the long end of a rat-tail comb in the center of the hairline, and part right to left in a Z shape. Finally, finger-comb hair with a dollop of pomade.
